Correction to notes:
The concert took place Sat Nov 30, 1985 at WREK's expansive Air Studio. The Minutemen were on tour with REM and were in town for a show. The show was arranged and hosted by Jon Kincaid and engineered by Eric Winter (of WREK). The show was recorded digitally (Sony PCM) on reel-to-reel and (of course) broadcast live as well. The original reel is in the hands of Mike Watt; the Sony PCM master is at WREK. A few songs were released on "ballot result". The origins of this particular recording of the show is unknown.
notes: the MINUTEMEN most likely played "live on the air" in the studios at WREK 91.1 FM.
this is the student run radio station at Georgia Institute of Technology. they regularly have bands
play live over the air. there is some dispute as to when this "show" took place however.
on the boot cd i received, the show was listed as November 29, 1985. some of these songs
('I Felt Like A Gringo', 'Jesus And Tequila', 'Courage', 'King Of The Hill', 'Bermuda',
and 'Mr. Robot's Holy Orders') appeared in better fidelity on the SST release,
Ballot Result. the credits for that album list the date as November 30, 1985.
so i went with that date. at least 3 songs are missing from this set.
'Little Man With A Gun In His Hand' and 'Political Song For Michael Jackson To Sing'
appear on Ballot Result. 'The Red And The Black' should appear after 'The Glory Of Man.'
unfortunately, the song gets cut off on my copy after about 10 seconds. in addition to all of this,
the copy i acquired was roughly one whole step sharp. in laymen's terms, the recording was "fast."
i have corrected the pitch as best as i could. in doing so though, the length of the "show"
has increased to roughly 83 minutes which makes it just slightly too big to fit onto one cd.
also, the ending of 'Hey Good Lookin'' and the beginning of 'Bermuda' are truncated most likely
due to the original "taper" flipping the tape over.
